The new Anytone Tech radios have just been released. These may prove to be an interesting addition to Emcomm communications. The Termin-8R receives on SIX BANDS! Receives on FM broadcast bands, AM broadcast bands, shortwave (no SSB), aircraft bands, can transmit and receive on VHF and UHF ham bands, business bands, GMRS and MURS frequencies. It provides full duplexing and the radio can supposedly be used as a cross band repeater with three power settings: 1 watt, 2 watt, and 5 watts. Price for the Termin-8R around $140. http://www.amrron.com/2015/03/09/the-new-anytone-handheld-radios-have-been-released/
Monday, February 23rd was a great day for the K7CEM Repeater. A dedicated crew assembled to finally fix a problem that has hindered the repeater since the original antenna was installed. Thanks to the crew from Riverside Fire Authority and their beautiful ladder truck, the actual fix only took a few minutes.
Area wide coverage now works as planned with a beautiful signal on both UHF and VHF frequencies. Thanks to Linc, K0ZCO who made the repair as well as his crew of helpers: Dave, KG7PVT, James, AE7TF, Lyle, KB7PI, and Chuck, W5KAV. Thanks to everyone involved.
